in afghanistan. but where did the term little america come from? >> it came from a remarkable project in the 1950s, led by a team of american engineers, to develop parts of southern afghanistan to dig irrigation candles, build dams, in the very same terrain that the current troop surge unfolded in. back then, these american engineers decided to build a model town for themselves. right smack dab in the middle of the desert in the province. eight square blocks. four blocks by two blocks. instead of traditional afghan homes, big tall walls, they built suburban style american homes, ramblers with white stucco walls. man cured front lawnsle them country's first and only code high -- co-ed high school, and a swimming pool where boys and girls could square together. and weekly square dances and a bar tender who could pull a mean gin and tonic. afghans looked at the model and said, that's fine for you americans. we don't want to live that way. but the afghans came up with the name for it, called it "little america" and that's where i got the title of the book because the grand development experiment, whi

would get the arms. we don't want to repeat afghanistan back when congressman charlie wilson was doing that very same thing and it was 0 is a many bin laden who benefit benefited. >> general, i want your take on mitt romney saying about strengthening the u.s. sanctions currently against iran saying i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them and tighten the sanctions we currently have. we have some of toughest sanctions yet on iran. the toughest in history under the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alterna
of afghanistan in 1979 and was richly rewarded with military aid as a result. that continued until the advent of gorbachev in 1985 to turn off the tap of military aid. the chill in the relationship continued until 2005 when a combination of increasing syrian isolation due to policies in lebanon and a much more aggressive russian foreign policy under vladimir putin established a close russian- syrian relationship we see today. let's look at the policies of vladimir putin in his second term. i see is reacting to be setbacks like the school fiasco, the orange revolution in the ukraine, and the increasing vulnerability of the u.s. in the middle east because of the invasion of iraq which -- and because of the revival in the taliban in afghanistan, vladimir putin went on the offensive. first, he tried to improve relations with iran, syria, and turkey. in the case of syria, the soviet era debt was forgiven and vladimir putin authorize new weapons sale. syria was one of the few states in the world to support the russian invasion in 2008. the second step occurred in 2007. the u.s. was still in disarra
to transition out of afghanistan in a responsible way, making sure that afghans take responsibility for their own security. and that allows us also to rebuild alliances and make friends around the world to combat future threats. >> reporter: on the other hand, romney accused obama of making the united states appear weak immediately after taking office. >> the president began what i've called an apology tour of going to various nations in the middle east and criticizing america. i think they looked at that and saw weakness. in those nations and on arabic you said that america had been dismissive and derisive. you said that on occasion america had dictated other nations. mr. president, america has not dictated to other nations. we have freed other nations. >> reporter: obama appeared eager to attack his republican opponent, accusing romney of sending mixed messages on important issues like afghanistan, iran, and iraq. romney focused on demonstrating his understanding of foreign policy, even agreeing with the president on many points. on syria, both candidates backed the use of interna
